I really hope someone can assist me here.
I need a software program that will allow me to alter the speed of Mpegs and AVIs etc as they are playing. It needs to allow me to slow the speed right down and freeze frame, and then to play the clip backwards. Preferably with the sound working.
I need to be able to play the clip at variable speed both forwards and backwards, as easily as possible - hopefully with just a slider bar, or something like that.
It is quite complicated why I need this - basically, my son, who is Autistic, gets fixated on various things from time to time. Currently he wants to see all his film clips backwards as well as forwards. He wants to swap speeds and directions of play very quickly. His films are stored in Mpeg, mpg and AVI format on an external HDD.
Is there an editing tool, or video player that will allow me to do this. It can be freeware - but I do not mind paying if I have to.
I hope you can help and advise me. Looking forward to your replys
